REpower Systems in which Suzlon Energy is a majority shareholder with over 90% holding has concluded a contract for the delivery of 25 wind turbines with EverPower Wind Holdings with an option to purchase an additional 85 units.
The REpower MM92 turbines, each with a rated power of 2.05 megawatts and a hub height of 80 metres are destined for EverPower`s development projects located across the US states of New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington.
EverPower has planned projects totaling more than 600 MW of capacity targeted for construction over the next three years.
The 25 turbines will have a total power output of 51 megawatts. The project will be commissioned by the end of 2011. Each turbine produces up to 6.5 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of wind electricity per year.
This is the first project between EverPower and the Germany-based wind turbine manufacturer`s USA subsidiary. In addition to installation and commissioning of the turbines, REpower and EverPower have entered into a long term service and maintenance agreement.
Mr Steve Dayney MD of REpower USA said that “We are happy to be working with the team at EverPower and are looking forward to a successful completion of this project.”
Mr Jim Spencer president and CEO of EverPower Wind Power said that “We are very excited to partner with REpower USA. REpower has some of the industry’s highest yields and is known for quality and reliability.”
